Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

What is the Pupil Premium Grant?

 

The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are historically known to have higher levels of underachievement. These are pupils entitled to free school meals (FSM), Service children and those that are or have been looked after by the local authority (LAC).

The Government says it is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium Grant is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within the school's responsibility. In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who are entitled to FSM will be socially disadvantaged. In addition, some pupils who do not receive FSM may have some significant barriers to learning.

Pupil Premium funding is spent on a needs basis, linked to analysis of outcomes for pupils. Limited funding and resources may mean that not all children who receive FSM will be in receipt of PP funded intervention at any one time. All schools have to report on the amount of PPG they received and the impact on outcomes it is having. Since 2016 The Eveleigh Link Academy Trust's  PPG Champion also monitors and liaises regarding best practice in using the PPG.
